Belgrano and Argentine Air Ranges Map

This map clearly shows the exclusion zone and the movements of the Belgrano. Interestingly, it also shows the relative ranges of the various Argentine aircraft. This explains why the British generally kept their Task Force out to the East to escape the expected onslaught. The map also shows the adjusted 12 mile exclusion limit imposed on May 7th.
